EXTERIOR: Wow, I think it would be impossible not to notice this car driving by. It has so much style! Park it next to a new Ford to really appreciate it. The body is very nice, it's straight and the panels fit square. I didn't find any bubbles. The paint is very smooth and glossy. The chrome and trim are exceptional. Up front the bumpers, grill, hood bird and trim is bright and shiny. The abundance of stainless trim around the windows, across the roof and down the sides is straight and polished. The door handles, vent window frames, taillights and rear bumper are bright chrome. It is also dressed up with dual spotlights with mirrors, rocker moldings, stone shields, rear antenna and fender skirts. Not to mention the Continental kit hanging off the back. The wire wheels add even more bling and they are wrapped in white wall tires.
INTERIOR: As I'm sitting in the car looking around I think it's in excellent condition. The seats feel good, they've been completely reupholstered. There is a center armrest cushion in the back seat. The door panels were replaced. It has matching black and yellow visors, the white perforated headliner has been replaced. The metal trim has all been repainted. All the lenses, knobs, the round radio, heater controls look good. The carpet has been replaced.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The original 272 motor purrs. It has original valve covers and air cleaner with the proper decals. It also features power steering. The engine compartment is cleaned up and painted nicely. The battery is bolted down properly and has a disconnect switch.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It looks real nice, rock solid metal has been painted gloss black and has a new gray and white plaid mat.
UNDERSIDE: Looking up at the motor it looks fresh. The Ford-o-matic trans looks fresh too. Both are dated to this car. The rear end has 3.30 gears. The front end components are clean. Swaybar bushings look new, the 4 shocks were replaced. Dual exhaust with Blue Streak mufflers give it that old school raspy sound. The floors look to be solid with original undercoat protecting them.
This car is striking. You don't have to spend $100,000 to catch the eyes of everyone around!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
